#MSWL Women's fic subs with a thriller/suspense element. For ref, see a book I worked on about a breast cancer survivor whose cancer is back, trapped by a forest fire, whose decision to give up or fight is complicated by 2kids & 2dogs trapped with her. amzn.to/31ZPgWD

I’d love a romance where the hero is this really dynamic physical person, strong, capable, a true man’s man, but juxtaposed by this very deeply feeling, beautiful gentle sensuous authentic person inside. A man man’s who leads with his heart. #MSWL

Would it be impossible to write a book about a teen who somehow exists in two different time periods at the same time? Like her lives actually overlap in some way. She thinks it’s only her but a guy in town experiences the same and they realize it & their past connection #R #MSWL

#AntiMSWL & #MSWL I prefer contemporary over historical romance unless the historical has some REALLY nifty hook, though I dig fantasy in a feudal setting. I don’t rep picture books and rarely chapter books, but I’m all about middle grade (with upper MG my sweet spot!)

I’m currently closed to queries but I firmly #MSWL this for when I open. Family controlled (or puppet-ed) by (haunted, cursed maybe) mice figurines who hide their very real presence from most but are very active in a super bad way with those they manipulate. #horror

#MSWL “I don’t think people understand how much kids like horror right now.” Quote from my 13yo son. So send me #YA horror pls. #MG horror is going strong now (head nods at @saskwriter). YA needs to make a big shelf—these kids are growing up. I *think* it could be the next trend.

Any southern fantasy writers out there? Meaning authors who write narratives deeply rooted in southern tradition, folklore, etc. I'm looking for you.... #MSWL

#mswl I’d really love a tightly plotted adult space opera. Kind of thinking a failing “abandoned” human colony sets out to make their way home. Maybe some crazy time dilation or something has occurred. Maybe very few men on the colony survive & they are trying to save them..cont.

For this particular #mswl, I’m not looking for intergalactic empires, rogues, mercenaries, smugglers etc. I really want to feel the vastness of space, that feeling of being alone. I want the story and the setting to mimic that feeling of isolation as well as Passengers did!

#MSWL someone write me a paranormal legal thriller, with a series in mind, with a hotshot young attorney who gets help from the ghost of former detective who can’t let his work go even in death (or something along those lines).

@JonathanPeeples ??

To take it a step further, I’m thinking like a goddess daughter born in modern times. #MSWL

I would very much like a middle grade novel about the (unknown) daughter of Hades and Persephone. #MSWL (something humorous like Percy Jackson please, but obvi not set in that same world).

I’m seeing lots of calls for contemporary fantasy, so send this my way, please! #MSWL

I've noticed a trend in some of my personal reading, Tau Zero, Spin, Seveneves. They all have something in common. The stories take place over millions of years. Some humans live for eons. Some as a people evolve over time. I'm totally up to represent something like this. #MSWL

Okay, things are about to get weird, but can someone please send me a super masculine viking who gets portaled to the future, but a future in the midst of an apocalypse, and of course there's love and adventure and he's uniquely qualified to save the day #ReverseOutlander #MSWL
